I own every pattern they make except the Mostro so I can vouch for the quality of their product. Very well done and extremely helpful! Pasha is passionate about puppetry and helping others to follow their passion. Once you have the basic pattern and begin learning some of the techniques you can quickly begin experimenting with variations that can lead to other kinds of puppets...like owls! And for what it's worth if you joined Puppets and Stuff and posted a question like "How do I make a mouth for an owl puppet?" I'm willing to bet you'd have half a dozen helpful replies in less than a day. Can't wait to see what you create!
